Richard Lenatsky at the Tonic, NYC, Jun 15

Treat your father ( or yourself) to a trip down memory lane this Father's Day, June 15, at the Klezmer Brunch at Tonic. Philadelphia area tenor, Richard Lenatsky, will perform oft-neglected folk and art songs made popular by such past luminaries of the Jewish music scene as Seymour Rechtzeit, Ben Bonus, Sidor Belarsky, and Jan Peerce. Let's keep the songs and the memory of the artists who performed them alive.

Richard will be accompanied on piano by well-known musician and Yiddish teacher (Uof Penn), Alexander (Sender) Botwinik. Show times are 1:30 and 3pm, $10 per show or $15 for both.

Who is Richard Lenatsky? Residing in West Chester, PA, I've been performing Yiddish art songs in the Phila. area and Amherst, MA, for about 10 years.

Eve's Women, NYC, Jul 12

I just wanted to let you know about the U.S. debut of "Eve's Women" from Israel who play both traditional klezmer as well as an "Israeli style" of klezmer with strong Middle Eastern, Latin and African influences.

They will be playing along with Chava Alberstein in Brooklyn's Prospect Park in the Celebrate Brooklyn! summer concert series on Saturday, July 12th at 7:30 pm. Here is an article that just came out about them in Israel21c.

These are four top female talents from Israel, coming from a variety of musical backgrounds - from symphony orchestras to the country's hottest rock bands. Consequently, they bring a truly unique and fresh blend of klezmer, jazz, rock and world music sounds.

New York, NY, 9/23/03-- The Kaufman Center presents an evening with the critically acclaimed Polish ensemble, The Cracow Klezmer Band, on Thursday, October 9 at 8 PM in Merkin Concert Hall. One of the most creative and innovative music groups in Poland, The Cracow Klezmer Band, founded in 1997 by arranger and accordionist Jaroslaw Bester, will perform original compositions and improvisations based upon particular elements of klezmer tradition. In a recent concert review, The Chicago Tribune proclaimed, "Of all the ensembles that have emerged in recent years to explore the meaning of klezmer in a new era, few have reached as high as the Cracow Klezmer Band, and fewer still have attained comparable results. Every composition whether exploring ebullient, age-old dance forms or investigating ancient cantorial melody painted an alluring portrait of Eastern European life and culture." The Cracow Klezmer Band is: Jaroslaw Bester, accordion; Jaroslaw Tyrala, violin; Oleg Dyyak, accordion, clarinet and percussion; and Wojciech Front, double bass.

The monthly Kavehoyz sponsored by the Congress for Jewish Culture, the League for Yiddish, and Yugntruf - Youth for Yiddish, is proud to present an evening of Yiddish song and music with

Deborah Strauss and Jeff Warschauer, aka:
the Strauss/Warschauer Duo
Thursday, Oct. 30, 2003 7:00 PM
at the Congress for Jewish Culture
25 E. 21 street in Manhattan
admission $5, includes kosher pastry and coffee.

The Strauss/Warschauer Duo brings together two internationally renowned musicians who are deeply committed to klezmer music and Yiddish song. Their performances are an integrated and intimate blend of songs, translations and instrumental music - grounded in tradition, yet thoroughly contemporary. They draw from klezmer, Yiddish, Hasidic and liturgical music and culture, adding their own original compositions and song settings. As they sing and play in shifting combinations of violin, guitar, mandolin and accordion, they create a dynamic atmosphere with an exceptional range of feeling - from delicate and refined to exuberant and foot-stomping.

Yiddish "Cat in the Hat", NYC, Nov 8


book coverAs part of our ongoing A Glezele Tey series, Sholem Berger will read from and discuss his recently published Yiddish translation of the Dr. Seuss classic, "The Cat in the Hat" with Celeste Sollod. "Di Kats der Payats" is the first official translation of any of Dr. Seuss's books into Yiddish. Erica Brody notes in her review:

"With his puckish grin, pert red bow-tie and ever-perky whiskers, the Cat in the Hat is once again on the prowl, ready to rescue children from the doldrums of drizzly afternoons. Thanks to Berger's translation, Di Kats der Payats makes his entre into perfectly rhymed Yiddish and is likely to inspire warm, fuzzy feelings for the impish cat and perhaps for Yiddish itself." - Forward, September 5, 2003.

A Glezele Tey will be presented on Saturday, November 8 at 7:00 p.m., at The Jewish Community Center in Manhattan (334 Amsterdam Avenue at West 76th Street).

south to Vesey Street. That is the north entrance to the complex which leads
into the Winter Garden.

The E train goes to Chambers St. also - a little further east.

The N and R trains go to Cortland Street (closer than Rector St.) and there
is a foot bridge over the highway to the Vesey St entrance to the World
Financial Center.

The #1 train goes to Chambers and then down to Rector Street. Rector is at
the south end of the WFC. Exit from the back of the train and you come out at
Rector St. walk one block west then north for 2 or 3 blocks and you'll come to
the the Ground Zero site. There's a footbridge that goes over the highway into
Tower A. Once inside you go to your right and follow the signs to the Winter
Garden. If the weather is bad this is a shorter walk outdoors than coming from
Chambers. You end up south of the Winter Garden (Liberty St. ).

The #6 train goes to Wall St.- a little further north and east of the Rector
St. station.

Adrianne Greenbaum writes:

On December 21 I will be performing with Pete Rushevsky and Marty Confurius (Cookie MAY join in on a set if she can briefly tear herself away from a family fete...) at Tonic. We'll be performing most of the Fleyt album but also additional Gulerman and Triplik/Beregovski tunes, a couple of which will hopefully performed on my "new" simple-system J. Zimmermann flute, c. 1899. It's a great sounding gem of an instrument if I can remember most of the fingerings... I'm gettin' there.... Anyway, I'd love to see many of you and maybe it'll be a nice warm afternoon like it's supposed to be this Sunday :-) Each set will be different so come to both and shmooze in between.

The upcoming New Years Eve and Jan. 3rd concerts from Latino-Jewish urban music collective Hip Hop Hoodos promise lots of booty-shaking and laughs alike. Comprised of bilingual musicians from Jewish/Latino backgrounds ("hoodo is a twist on the word "judio" - Spanish for "Jew"), the members of Hip Hop Hoodos are linked by a common love for Latin alternative music, or rock and rap "en Espanol". But don't call these guys the Jewish answer to Tenacious D or the Latino respuesta to the Beastie Boys: Hip Hop Hoodos are out to change the notions and preconceptions of Latin music entirely. Following the groups recent standing room-only concerts at Joes Pub and the Brooklyn Academy of Music (as well as packed dates in Chicago and LA), Los Hoodios perform at Makor in NYC on Saturday, Jan. 3rd, and also have a special New Years Eve date at First Night Montclair in New Jersey.

In the Nazi-mandated ghettos during World War II, audiences gathered in makeshift clubs and theaters to hear newly-created songs, rooted in Jewish folk song, European cabaret, American jazz and Argentine tango. Jewish performers tuned these cosmopolitan songs in a local key: satirical and elegiac, political and personal, angry and heartsick, creating something scarcely conceivable: art at the edge of the abyss.

Between Two Worlds/The Dybbuk, NYC, 2/21

Jack Falk writes:

About 10 years ago I was drafted as music director for a
puppet theater production of "The Dybbuk" here in Portland.
(Since then I've worked on two other productions of the same
play, leading me to speculate that while possession might
not actually be 9/10 of the law, it was certainly approaching
9/10 of my musical activity.)

After all this time, "Between Two Worlds/The Dybbuk" has been remounted, and this time it's going on the road. In New York, there are three performances: Thu 2/19 8 pm, Sat 2/21 8 pm, and Sun 2/22 3 pm at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St. For ticket info: (917) 606-8200.

alicia svigalsBefore the big klezmer bands of New York arose with their brass and clarinets, there were the archetypical Jewish orchestras of the old world, led by the fiddle and borne aloft by the otherworldly sounds of the harp-like "tsimbl", or Jewish hammered dulcimer. This evening, the world's leading klezmer fiddler, the renowned Alicia Svigals, co-founder of the legendary Klezmatics, presents a program of these ancient and ecstatic Jewish melodies, accompanied by "tsimbler" Pete Rushefsky, one of the few musicians in the world to have mastered this traditional instrument. Join these two great figures in the revival and revitalization of "Old World" Jewish music a week before Purim for a musical communion with beloved ghosts from this Eastern European past.

Some would say Purim is a Jewish holiday about a queen in Persia who saved the Jews of her kingdom from a violently egotistical prime minister.

With music, dancing, and drinking.

Join JDub, Matisyahu, and Hazon for a Purim night on the lower east side. In the spirit of turning things on their head, we've got an unbelievable bill of things Jewish and Not-So with Hasidic Reggae Superstar Matisyahu, hip hop band Automato and Londonian-Bostonian MC Kabir.

    Joanne Borts, dancer
    Helene Zilberberg-Domergue, dancer
    Steven Weintraub, dancer

    Rediscovering the music of the European Jewish wedding has involved years of research with living informants, pre-Holocuast European recordings, and rare archival collections. Khevrisa is unique in its presentation of the music of the European Jewish wedding with original instrumentation, and with the traditional interaction of badkhn and klezmer. A particularly exciting innovation, created especially for tonight's program at the 92nd Street Y, is the performance of actual traditional dances from the East European Jewish wedding, including the freylakhs, sher, broygez-tants (dance of anger and reconciliation), and virtuosic solo dances. These portions of the program constitute one of the only stage performances of traditional Ashkenazic dancing in North America since the Second World War.

But before all the books, the CD's and the films, there was that very first, life-affirming trip...

If you've never heard a diatonic harmonica played chromatically by a virtuosic klezmer giant, then well, I don't think we can be friends anymore. Not to mention some phat beats may be dropped by one, DJ SoCalled (but if he breaks 'em, he buys 'em).

    Wednesday, April 13, 8 p.m.
    At the Center for Jewish History,
    15 West 16th Street, New York City.

    'Avant-premiere' of Z'vi, an opera-in-progress by Richard Teitelbaum. It is based on the true story of Shabbetai Z'vi, a 17th-century rabbi in the Ottoman Empire who was widely hailed throughout Europe and the Middle East as the Messiah. After adopting Islam in addition to Judaism, he went on to develop a syncretic faith and practice incorporating elements of both religions. The opera explores issues of cross-cultural engagement, tolerance, dialog, and understanding. Performers include: Cantor Jacob Ben-Zion Mendelson (tenor), Omar Faruk Tekbilek (ney, voice, zurna, percussion), David Krakauer (clarinet, bass clarinet), Richard Teitelbaum (sampling keyboard) and others.

    Brave Old World, NYC, May 11-15

    brave old worldStu Brotman writes about the "great lost" Brave Old World program, now being released on CD, and now appearing in NYC!

    Brave Old World will be presented by the Folksbiene Theatre in New York this May 11-15. We¹ll be performing our program called "Song of the Lodz Ghetto," which has just been released as a beautiful new Winter and Winter cd called "Dus gezang fin Geto Lodzh."

    From the Folksbiene's announcement on their website, folksbiene.org/!musical-events.html:

    The New York premiere of the innovative klezmer group's moving, theatrical musical program blending Yiddish tradition, classical music, jazz, and rare Jewish street and cabaret songs from the Nazi ghetto of Lodz, Poland between 1940 and 1944. (At the Triad Theater, on West. 72nd Street, 9pm, $20.) The New York premiere of the innovative klezmer group's moving, theatrical musical program blending Yiddish tradition, classical music, jazz, and rare Jewish street and cabaret songs from the Nazi ghetto of Lodz, Poland between 1940 and 1944. (At the Triad Theater, on West. 72nd Street, 9pm, $20.)"

    I¹m very proud of this show. It¹s essentially a through-composed tone poem, a one-act musical play, in suite form, in Yiddish and Polish, with English supertitles projected overhead. Long-lost songs of resistance from street-singers of the Lodz ghetto are contrasted with pre-war Polish and Yiddish songs; original klezmer laments and deep jazz improvisations, references to Beethoven, evoke powerful emotions.

    Vampire Suit, Brooklyn, NY, Jun 17

    Vampire Suit draws on Jay Vilnai's unique musical heritage as a Russian- Romanian-Polish descendant raised in Jerusalem around a mix of contemporary and traditional Jewish and Arab music, with a soul for rock n'roll and a BFA in jazz. Couple that with a passion for Bartok and Stravinsky and you end up with all original music that draws on all those influences to create something akin to traditional music for a generation that has so many traditions it calls his. Balkan and Middle-Eastern rhythms are prominent, backed by 20th century composing concepts and jazz improvising. Vampire Suit will be playing June 17th, at 8:00pm at Barbes, corner of 9th St. and 6th Ave. in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

    Jewish Music Forum kicks off season with Hankus Netsky lecture, NYC, Sep 23

    The Jewish Music Forum is very pleased to introduce the 2005-2006 schedule of our academic seminar series, “New Perspectives on Music in Jewish Life.” The second year of this series continues the Forum’s initial goal of providing new contexts for scholars across Jewish studies to explore ways of incorporating music into their research. We have assembled a broad range of researchers who approach Jewish music from a rich variety of methodological and theoretical perspectives.

    We are delighted that our first speaker this year will be Dr. Hankus Netsky of the New England Conservatory of Music. On Friday, September 23 at 10 A.M. at the Center for Jewish History, Dr. Netsky will deliver a lecture, “The Philadelphia Russian Sher Medley: Viewing the Immigrant Experience through a Musical Text.” Dr. Mark Slobin of Wesleyan University will serve as respondent to this talk.

    All sessions of the Jewish Music Forum take place on Friday mornings, beginning at 10:00 AM at the Center for Jewish History. For additional information, please email James Loeffler. or callt 212-294-8328.
